This book wasn't bad so I'll give it 2 stars but rather your typical bland IR billionaire boyfriend romance that mildly annoyed me more than anything else, mostly due to the overuse of the boring tropes of this subgenre.

The slightly brutish jealous, possessive and manipulating billionaire love interest that quickly got on my nerves with the way he kept leering at the heroine and coming way too strong at her with the requisite instantaneous rock solid "hard on" ugh! He wasn't the worst of this kind, I kind of tolerated him, but certainly not the best and I had a hard time finding him attractive.
As for the heroine, Bailey, she had some potential but it all fizzled out the moment she saw him and got instantly wet So, yeah, she wasn't the worst kind but not the best either. Finally, if I could believe the lust, didn't buy the "luvvvv" that happened not even after knowing each other for all of 5 minutes. I also felt more for Kevin, who I find way more attractive, physically and also with the way he acted, than the billionaire lovers that I was supposed to be amazed by.
So yeah, not the worst but not the most interesting. Some women have a hard time trusting Bailey Walters was one such woman having been cheated on by two too many men. That is why she was very hesitant about giving billionaire business mogul Lucas Marx any notions of dating, especially when she found out that her boss Sandra Callahan was his ex.

Even though she was very attracted to Lucas and he to her, she fought it as long as she could, even though she had a decoration job to do at his home. Lucas, being the wheeler dealer venture capitalist, made a deal with Bailey's roommate and best friend Sienna Keller, to encourage Bailey to go out with him. The deal blew up on everyone when their so called friend, Faith Sullivan the spoiled, jealous former roommate let the cat out of the bag.
Lucas was none too happy with Bailey's reaction and Bailey's ex Kevin's insinuating himself back into Bailey's life ended things.
They were both miserable without each other. Despite Bailey's father throwing a hissy fit when he found out about Lucas, they were determined to make a go of their relationship again. They did not want to succumb to those two words "if only" and be lost to their HEA. The author wrote a touching love story about two stubborn people in love. One was a rich businessman who was used to getting what he wanted and was determined to get the girl he wanted and prove to her that he was not what the public opinion of the internet said he was, all while trying to keep a scheming woman and her family at bay.
The other one was a young woman who had very limited sexual experience with men because she had her heart broken too many times and protected her heart by putting up a wall. She was not going to be Lucas' booty call and be dumped. She was her own independent person and was not going to be bought by Lucas' money. Nor was she going to succumb to the scheming of her father. She was no longer his baby girl anymore. This story was very interesting and kept me reading wanting to find out what else this couple was going to do as well as what those roommates of Bailey's and exes were getting into next.
I can see another story written about Sienna and Lucas's best friend and partner Gavin Crane next. That should be interesting too. Bailey Walters was one such woman having been cheated on by two too many men. Devil's Deal is a mostly well written, steamy love story. Bailey is a waitress who also works as a designer at an interior design firm.
She's working 2 jobs to pay off her debt, and hoping someday her dream job of head designer will come true, when she meets Lucas, a hot billionaire playboy, at her waitressing job. He hits on her and is really surprised that his usual lines don't work on her. She's a little sensitive because she's been hurt by the insipid, cheating exes in her past, not to Devil's Deal is a mostly well written, steamy love story. She's a little sensitive because she's been hurt by the insipid, cheating exes in her past, not to mention that she feels as if Lucas is only interested in trying to figure out her ethnic makeup.
It makes for a less than positive introduction to someone who's hoping to get to know you, and Bailey definitely didn't like it, either.

But, he gets a chance later to make up for his misstep earlier, when he runs into Bailey at her design job, and he's even more delighted when Bailey is assigned to work on his home. As their relationship takes a turn into sexual, even though Bailey had been adamant that she'd never sleep with him, it was nice to see Lucas be interested even after the first time they had sex. But, it was also at this point that I started to have some misgivings about this story.
Some of the wording in the sex scenes was a bit cheesy, ie: penis rather than cock, vagina rather than pussy, and even labia. Ugh, such clinical terms have no place in steamy scenes! The story languishes a bit, and there's some drama regarding exes of both Bailey and Lucas, and there's the inevitable point where they breakup because of miscommunication. It was all resolved rather quickly, though, with not too much angst. I wavered between 3 and 4 stars, but because I like both Bailey and Lucas, I decided on 4 stars. I like their connection and the fact that this is an interracial romance, but that the race issue isn't the central point of interest.
I do have to say that the epilogue was a surprise, and kind of a terrible way to end Lucas and Bailey's story, but, it does set up Sienna Bailey's best friend and Gavin's Lucas' best friend story, which I'm looking forward to. Here's hoping Michele will leave out the cheesy language in the sex scenes and keep Gavin and Sienna the interesting characters they are here in Devil's Deal.
Devil's Deal Almost Ruin Relationships. This is one of the better interracial romances that I've read. However the race issue isn't the central point of interest. How different characters reacted to those of different races was handled almost to well to be realistic.
summit.vvinners.com/neji-del-servicio-citroen.php People of different races aren't as accepted as they seemed to be in this book, especially by both families. Lucas and Bailey, the main characters, were well developed. He appeared to be arrogant but he treated his employees well and Devil's Deal Almost Ruin Relationships. He appeared to be arrogant but he treated his employees well and really cared for their families.
You could tell they loved working for him even though he was a hard worker and expected as much from them. When Lucas first saw Bailey he thought of warm honey. Her friends called him Mr. Hotness and she quietly agreed with them. There was a strong, instant attraction between them. He was determined to have her and she was just as determined that he wouldn't. She thought he was very handsome but thought he was a cheater like a couple of her exes.
